                                  My Review of 
                              Tiananmen West: 
           Why Nixon Ordered the Kent State Massacre




     Congratulations to Jenny Deason Copeland, who accomplished the nigh impossible feat of writing a 370-page book arguing that President Richard Nixon ordered the Kent State shootings. All without offering the teensiest, weeniest,  morsel of evidence supporting her claim.

     Sorry, Jenny, just because Nixon admitted in his memoirs that he felt responsible for the killings does not mean he handpicked a National Guardsman to an give an actual order to fire. 

     I needed two Tylenol to finish this book, with all its faulty facts, convoluted logic, and wild leaps of the imagination.
